Stoners might always have a joint on hand for the moment where it could come in handy, but we are often unprepared for most other things. Once you leave your house, pretty much anything is possible. You’ll just never know who you’ll run into while you’re out and about, or what you might do, which means that you should be traveling packed and ready to handle anything, and we’ve got some idea that can help you to do just that.

1. CBD gum

Cannabis enthusiasts love the smell of it, but not everyone is quite so fond of the smell, and there is nowhere that it is more apparent than on your breath, especially if you’ve toked recently. Hence the reason we highly suggest taking a pack of CBD gum with you everywhere you go, and preferably one with a stronger flavor like mint or peppermint, to freshen up your breath as needed.

2. Leakproof refillable water bottle

Some cannabis strains are more notorious for it than others but smoking any kind of weed is bound to leave your mouth dry and sticky. This is caused by the heat, that interferes with the body’s natural production of saliva, which can make it hard to swallow, talk, or really enjoy anything, and that is why every stoner’s bag should include a freshly filled water bottle that is easy to refill and always available for when it’s needed most.

3. Travel-sized toothbrush kit

We’ve mentioned the bad breath that goes along with toking or vaping cannabis products, and though gum can help to temporarily veil the stench, the only way to get rid of it completely is with a good quality toothpaste and a toothbrush. Of course, full-size versions can be bulky and irritating to carry around, but a travel size kit will fit neatly into the palm of your hand which makes them easy to stash away in any kind of bag or the glove compartment of your car for when you’re on the go.

4. Alcohol-free mouth wash

Some people just don’t like chewing gum, and it doesn’t take long to go through a pack, plus it doesn’t actually kill any of the odor-causing bacteria that can cause bad breath, which is why mouthwash is number four on our list of essentials for stoners. If you use all of the other ideas combined with a gentle mouthwash that can kill harmful bacteria, then you will truly be good to go for an on the spot interview, or a hot date at just a moment’s notice.

5. Gentle cologne or perfume

Stoners for a number of years have experimented with ways to cover up the fact that they enjoy cannabis, and since it’s a smelly activity, it can stick to your clothes, following you everywhere that you go. Of course, you can do things like keeping your jackets and sweaters washed on a regular basis, but if you’re stuck in a pinch and you’ve just smoked a joint, there is nothing that works quite as well or near as fast as a good cologne or perfume.

6. CBD lip balm

Whether you’re a smoker or a vaper, the consistent exposure to heat will eventually dry out your mouth and lips, and it doesn’t take long for this problem to get out of control, leading to dry and cracked lips that can bleed and hurt. This is not a situation that any cannabis enthusiast wants to find themselves in, and one of the best ways to avoid it is a regular use of a moisturizing treatment like CBD lip balm. The best part is that it’s tint free and scent-free, which makes it perfect for both men and women, just one more reason to grab a stick and keep it on you.

7. An extra sweater

In the hot weather, this may not be a viable option, but if you can keep a sweater or jacket that is specifically used for smoking weed, along with a clean and fresh smelling alternative that can be swapped out when you’re finished, then people around you won’t be able to smell it nearly as easily. Unfortunately, cannabis smoke clings to softer materials, but this extra piece of clothing can save you a whole lot of hassle, so it’s an extra step that’s worth it.

8. Visine (or some other equivalent)

When you’re stoned, even if you aren’t smoking, your eyes likely won’t take long to become red and looking inflamed, which is kind of a dead giveaway to anyone who is close enough to notice. In some cases, this might not really matter, but just in case you have to face an impromptu visit from your boss, or your parents who disapprove of cannabis, you might want to ensure that you carry a bottle of red-eye treatment like Visine with you everywhere that you go.

9. Hand sanitizer

We’ve talked about the smells that stick to your clothes, hair, and even your breath, but a lot of stoners don’t realize that their hands can stink too. Cannabis is sticky, so if you’ve just rolled or smoked a fat blunt, then your hands are going to smell like the fresh buds that you’ve handled, and the best way to get rid of that quickly, is with a hearty dose of hand sanitizer. It also helps to combat germs, so it’s a multi-purpose essential that should be in every stoner’s bag.

10. A smell proof bag

After you’ve gathered all of the incredible items that are listed here, you might be wondering how to move them all from point a to point b, which is why number ten is a comfortable and smell proof bag that you can store everything in. On top of all of these goodies, you’ll want a grinder, some buds, and perhaps a few extras like a bong, or a pipe, so make sure to select a scent containing bag that is large enough to comfortably fit everything.
